cobb. a remarkable achievement. congratulations and kudos to miguel cabrera. time, now, for a look at weather across the country. an early winter storm from north dakota to northern minnesota, with some areas getting up to a foot of snow, getting towards that time of year again. here we go. also, rain could be heavy at times in the northeast, around boston, new york, philly and d.c. showers and thunderstorms from wilmington, north carolina, down to miami. mostly dry for the rest of the country. >> get out the winter coats for the kids. need to wash them. atlanta 86. new orleans, 60s for the central plains. and from salt lake city into the pacific northwest. the state where gas prices are soaring this morning. 5 bucks a gallon could be in sight. we'll tell you where. and forget free. facebook wants you to pay to make sure that your friends read your posts. and later in the show, the breakout star of the denver debate is, yeah, that big fellow right there. the one and only big bird.
